“Downton Abbey” actress Michelle Dockery has been cast in “Good Behavior,” a drama pilot ordered by TNT.

“Good Behavior” is based on a series of novels by Blake Crouch. Dockery is set to play Letty Dobesh, a thief and con artist fresh out of prison.

The role will be Dockery’s first television gig following “Downton Abbey,” which is set to conclude after its upcoming sixth season. Dockery has been nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards for her work on the British period drama.

“Good Behavior” is being developed by “Wayward Pines” showrunner Chad Hodge, who is also developing “Abandon” for USA. Both those projects are also based on books by Crouch, who will co-write the “Good Behavior” pilot with Hodge.
